It doesn’t matter if you’re alive, have a felony conviction on your rap sheet, or even reside in Putnam County, Florida when it comes to hitting the polls and casting your ballot.
It has been discovered that a total of 42 ineligible votes were counted in the 2016 sheriff’s election in that locale which was decided by a mere 16 votes, giving Homer “Gator” DeLoach a narrow victory over Jonathan Kinney.
Of the 42 votes, there were 32 convicted felons who did not have voting rights restored, three cast via mail allegedly by people who had died prior to the election, three from non-county residents, two received after the legal deadline, one from someone who also voted in New Jersey, and another from a man deemed mentally incompetent.
Kinney was ahead by 18 votes after the original tally but 430 votes that hadn’t been uploaded to the county’s server were later added and swung the election in DeLoach’s favor. Kinney filed to challenge the results and the subsequent investigation revealed the 42 ineligible votes.
The case will go to trial next week and it will be decided if the ineligible voters did, in fact, sway the election.
